Keeping Up Daily...Top Stories to Help Us Keep Up

Morning news....the quickest way to read it!

Nothing ever surprises me about the Bush Administration, so it wouldn't surprise me that former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge says pressure from fellow Cabinet members to raise the nation's terror alert level just before the 2004 presidential election helped convince him it was time to quit working for President George W. Bush, but despite the pressure, the alert level was never raised. Well, this is just another reason that highlights why Americans lost faith in Bush, but are Americans losing faith in Obama too? According to the results of a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, the survey found that just 49 percent believe he will make the right decisions for the country, down from 60 percent at the 100-day mark of his presidency. Well, I haven't lost faith in him, and I am not losing faith that one day the harsh acts of racist people will end. However, it is not over yet; authorities have charged two teenagers and an adult in connection with the beating of 76-year-old African-American man, James Privott, early Tuesday in Baltimore, Maryland, in an incident police say had a racial connection. This isn't anything new, but the launch of a solar cell phone is. Kenya's biggest mobile phone company, Safaricom Ltd., launched the nation's first solar-charged phone this month. The handset comes with a regular electrical charger and a solar panel that charges the phone using the sun's rays. That should be interesting, just like the story of cancer survivor Faith Coleman who has co-founded a free clinic in Florida to help the uninsured access health care. While Coleman is helping the uninsured, Sony is helping us see the last three months of Michael Jackson's life. The film about Michael Jackson's final three months, which uses video of rehearsals for his concert comeback, will run in theaters worldwide for two weeks only beginning October 28, according to Sony Pictures. Tickets go on sale September 27th. This will be a victory for Sony and Michael Jackson, but the premature claims of victory in the Afghanistan's election from President Hamid Karzai's and chief rival Abdullah Abdullah have not yet been declared a real victory yet. Back in America, American companies are now sitting on record mountains of cash in fear of the economy's future. With the holding of cash from consumers and now companies, it could add to worries about the sustainability of an economic recovery.
